Best Level for Challenge:
Gives the level that one should take the challenge in order to minimize the expected number of actions in order to succeed. Calculated assuming that:
(a) preparation with highest increase (i.e. 3) is always taken, and always successful (Dangerous >= 140).
(b) cost for Wounds recieved is not taken into account.
Expected Number of Actions:
The expected number of actions spent to succeed the challenge if one tries the challenge as soon as the "best level for challenge" is reached, assuming (a) and (b). The calculation is exact, and rounded to +/-0.005. If (a) does not hold, one can obtain an estimate by multiplying the number given by the expected gain in preparation per action divided by the maximum gain in preparation per action (not an exact estimate in general).
